  • A question regarding getting hold of a pattern

    I am wanting to knit the Slouchy Cardigan by Helene Roux. It is published in "Greetings from Knit Cafe", an American book. I've had a look in my library and done a search across all the libraries in my area, but nowhere has it. I could ask them to buy it, but it could take weeks/months and there is no guarantee they would!

    My only other alternative would seem to be to buy the book, but at £15, when I only want the one pattern, it would make it too expensive once I have bought the yarn as well.

    I don't want to diddle the designer out of royalties - after all, like us she has put hard work into the design - but I don't feel right just asking for a photocopy of the pattern from someone with the book (although I would be fine in terms of copyright laws).

    Anyone else been in this situation? What did you do?

    There are some cheaper copies on Amazon uk(just under £8 + £2.75 postage) and on Amazon.com they started at £3.99 but I'm not sure how much the shipping is.

      Thanks for looking poppylee, but that would still make it £10+ (and shipping from the States would make it even more pricey). I think I might have to look at knitting something else instead!
